Community News from Merthyr Town

It's been a busy week for the Community team at Merthyr Town FC.

Firstly we hosted another of our monthly football cinema nights on Thursday at the Railway Club in the Town Centre, this month's film was the comedy Mike Bassett - England Manager which certainly entertained everyone who braved the inclement weather.

Next month's viewing will be a Tottenham Hotspur special with the 1983 film Those Glory Glory Days showing from 7.45pm on Thursday 25th November, once again in the Public Hall at the Railway Club. Don't forget it's free to attend plus there's complimentary ice cream and popcorn.

The weekend was completed with the Community Team hosting the Club's annual contribution to the Let's Kick Racism Out of Football Campaign. Chard Town were the visitors to the Rhiw Dda ground at Taffs Well for the Day of Action and both Chard and the Match Officials were delighted to join the Martyrs in showing their support for the campaign message.

Every supporter in the 270 crowd would have received a copy of the campaign magazine and a key-ring to enforce the message that racism in any form is unacceptable.

Both team captains exchanged campaign pennants to complete the day of action.
